Why are there no Carriage Return buttons on Instagram? Poetry needs.

My laptop battery died, so everything has to happen on my phone now. 

I am building my fan base before monetizing my poetry and art business. 

Sometimes I reply to peoples' posts in rhythm and rhyme. 

It is very difficult to get taken seriously, if I don't have a Carriage Return in the correct place. 

Publishers and Editors follow me back. It is important I appear as professional as possible with my creative writer replies online. 

That is very difficult to do when a Carriage Return button doesn't even exist on my visual keyboard on some platforms. 

For instance, my Facebook keyboard does have the Carriage Return button available, as do my texts, and email messages. But, my Instagram account does not, even though it is linked to my Facebook account.

Does anyone know why the Carriage Return function would automatically be removed from the visual keyboard on one platform, but not another?

And if so, is there a simple way to remedy the issue?

Please let me know if you think you know the answer. 

Many thanks.

That would be down to the app developers and how the apps were compiled.

There is nothing that you can do yourself other than request this feature.

Thank you, Pugs1957.

I will try to ask Instagram for help on this one then.

Thank you.

Might I suggest you type it out in another app and just copy and paste it if you cannot do that within Instagram?
